Not a Mere Drip

Ever since Chrome rocked the internet crowd - interest in a new browser has been minimal. But a new variant of a well known browser is making a splash. So far I like it. Splash is an appropriate word since the new browser is Waterfox. As my bookmarks (favorites) are synced and speed comparisons begin to show up it''ll be easier to give an opinion. IE certainly has real competition, but is still the most popular.

Waterfox 8.0.1 is 64 bit and requires Microsoft's Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64). It's a simple install and can be downloaded here. It's also linked at the Waterfox download page. You'll find links to Flash 11, Silverlight 5, and 64 bit Sun Java there too. Download at your risk. If you become TARFU don't complain here.

Hope this helps!
